Question about Phones

1 Answer

I purchased a GE DECT 6.0 Model #28871 telephone for my mother. When she is on a call there is a tone (like someone pushing a key on the keypad) that interrupts the conversation. It typically starts approx. 1 minute into the conversation and may reaccur again in 30 seconds or soand then at intervals varying from several seconds to a few minutes. This "tone" can be heard by both people on the line and there is a momentary interruption in the conversation. This happens while talking on the base unit and while the person is stationary (not moving around). I have read the manual and troublshooting front to back and am at a loss as to the cause ...help!

    I have exactly the same problem and because GE support is useless I will be returning the phone.

    Yes, we have a very similar problem. It rings once and the caller hears a horrible screeching sound. Then person being called hears the one ring and then it stops ringing. The call goes into voice mail.

    Exactly the same issue - sounds like a second call coming in with Call Waiting, but there is no call waiting on the line.

    I have the same problem too! And the new problem is ""00 and 5E" is flashing and we cannot stop it! I will be taking this phone back to the store! What a complete disappointment.

    Yes! I Keep on thinking the other party is getting a call. Now I know. What happens with my unit also is that when I get a call the Caller ID shows the right number of the caller but the name of whomever made the prior call. Does this happen to you too?

    Me too - same problem m- TWICE - I took the first telephone set back to

    Future Shop. They replaced the unit. We thought it was a "one of" problem. Got home - hooked the second one up and again - the same clicking problem. I went back into the store - to tell the story - the chap there had sold several of these telephone without any problems. He suggested we hook the telephone up at someone else place - we did - it still clicks.

I can't retrieve any of my messages. The messages don't come through. The only indication I have a message is the beeping tone with the dial tone. caastle@aol.com

The DECT telephone is linked to our mainline phone - however it does not pick up the dialling tone or the ring tone. The battery is okay, the signal is good, but you cannot speak on the phone. ...


Re-Register a Handset to the Base
1. Remove Handset Battery.
2. Reconnect battery while holding down "*" and "#" key.
3. Then press the right upper key under the LCD.
4. Press the "End" key.
5. Wait a few seconds and then the phone will be ready to register to the base.

G.E. MODEL 28871 DECT 6.0 TELEPHONE/ANSWERING SYSTEM


The red light on the handset charger turns on to indicate that the handset battery is charging. The light will blink to show the handset is charging and remain on when the handset is charged.
